They do make me chuckle. Bought a load of ewe lambs and ewes at a society sale for someone else a few years ago, told one of the society members we were going to use exlana rams over them. The reply was “why on earth would you want to use one of those mongrels over pure easy cares” and the usual why record, you shouldn’t record, it’s not an easy care thing to do.
I don’t think I was popular with those individuals for suggesting they only had mongrels on the Facebook group. Meanwhile, those ‘original’ breeders of Easycares are apparently introducing Texel blood to improve them.
